Chemistry Lab-Heat of Fusion
Learners determine the heat of fusion of ice. In this heat of fusion lesson plan, students use a calorimeter to measure the molar heat of fusion of ice. Learners determine the heat required to melt one mole of ice using hot water and ice to measure the temperature changes of both. They answer 4 post lab questions and compare their data to other students. They write an equation for the melting of ice including kJ required.
